  1. I need to find a new home for a "Marshalltown Manufacturing Throatless Shear".

    The ID plate states:

    "Patent No. 1651654
    "Serial No. 3366
    "No. 12H

    The tool itself is intact, unmodified, rust-free and . . . heavy!

    I hope that someone here can advise me of its history and value?

    It is in Bentonville, Arkansas (72712 zip).



  2. Im looking to sell a Oliver 232-D table saw, a Oliver 144-BD jointer , and two Oliver 159-A lathes for 3k even for all the mechanics if you or anyone is interested please contact me by email gioocasio@gmail.com and on subject put Oliver tools its firm for all of them as a bundle

  3. I really love and seriously admire just walking around and looking at an older mans shop . I can tell his quality of craftsmanship and level of dedication to his craft by seeing his shop and listening to him speak about it . It's priceless .

  4. Best time to call? I'm just getting into the wood working business. I havent gotten many tools and I have to go cheap on power tools or buy used. So I'm greatly interested.

  5. That smaller sliding table saw was really cool. I've never seen one small like that. I can imagine it would have been very handy. Lucky guy whoever was picking it up that day.

  6. Those are tools when bought back in the day were made to last a lifetime and then some Love the jointer Thanks for sharing

  7. Hey John! thanks for the tour. I'm in N. Haledon and might reach out to Bob on what he has. What were the names of those lumber suppliers he mentioned? I'm looking for good sources of hardwood in NNJ

  8. I used to live in Wayne – was surprised to hear the name when you started talking. Love the shop and old tools – they don't make them like that anymore. Congrats to Bob on retirement. Scott

  9. Rob, I realize that this Video is over a year old, but I just got around to watching as my shop was consumed in a fire on February 9th, and now I am faced with rebuilding. Because of my situation, I have not been able to personally review the condition of equipment. The pictures show that the General 350 table saw, Jos Poitras Jointer and Oneway Lathe look to be "standing". Have you ever had the opportunity or need to restore any tool that has been through a fire? If so, any advice of what to look out for? Functionality is one thing, but safety is a bigger concern. I wouldn't want something to fly apart once I have restored and repaired it because of stresses induced by the fire. Anything you could share would be appreciated. Thanks


  11. My rockwell bandsaw is very similar but it is a little older so it doesn't have that kill switch but it does have cast iron wheels. We put a digital three phase variable speed panel on it because we use it for wood and metal.

  12. I worked in a large shop briefly and they had 3 SawStops. That "block vision overhead guard" is disturbing plus the fact that the SS saw is a 1955 design with a sensor for stopping the blade; otherwise you are talking out of turn saying it (SS) is the best when you have not included a Euro sliding table in the mix of machines. The Euro slider is king. The SS saw attachment sliding table is a joke: like driving a car using the space saver spare tire. Glad my wife did not see your review when I purchased the machines I use everyday. I buy the cheapest cars and vans and take care of them but with woodworking machines I always try to get the best the industry has to offer. The higher cost of well designed machines pays for itself in production and when you sell it later. thanks for the vid. I would like to see the expression on your face when you get a sliding table saw.

  13. Hi Rob during this excellent video I noted the dust extraction hood on the chop saw behind the band saws. It would be interesting to see this more closely. Indecently lovely workshop.

  14. Hi Rob, I discovered your videos by chance, and absolutely love your teaching style, and advice.
    I noticed your miter saw in the background, and it has what looks like a dome flexible style housing as a dust collection. Is this the best style of dust collection available for a miter saw?
    I'm trying to improve my miter saw dust collection, and have considered your style.

  15. I have been living in China for the past 20 years. Before we moved there, I had a small wood workshop, But all my tools are long gone. I am retiring soon and want to begin woodworking again during my retirement years. I like the machines you recommended on this video. However, my budget is limited. What table saw would you recommend?

  16. Rob what is your opinion/experience on radial arm saws? They seem to be a controversial item. I inherited a craftsman from my father and seems to run well despite being a pain to calibrate

  17. I have a used delta 10" left tilt saw. It was ok. I added a motor with more hp. Upgraded the fence. Bolted it down to the floor to minimize movement. Made sure everything was plumb and straight. It's no saw stop but for around $1000 all in, it's pretty damn good. Most people can get away with something similar.

  18. If anyone's really into speed changes on a drill press [more for those finicky machinist types] you just can't beat a VFD.

  19. I have a drill press with no adjustment so I bought a 2 ton hydraulic jack and use it to raise the table when I need to

  20. Rob, I have the Hammer A3-31 12" planer thicknesser, it's the "hobby" brand that Felder produce. I chose their helical "Silent Power" cutterhead, and on the basis of how well it performs, I can only back up your comment that this is a real advance in woodworking machine technology. In my opinion, it's a much better design than the retrofit ones including the one you have on your General, but that is partly because they had the opportunity to do a full redesign of the head with no constraints. Probably the best planer cutterhead available, bar none. It's a lot quieter, and it makes small chips that are easily extracted. I can plane awful stuff like yew with horrible knotty grain – almost impossible wood. Your recommendation of this type is spot on, but maybe if you tried the Felder cutterhead I think you'd abandon the others.
    The rest of it is also very satisfactory, with the sole exception of the fence, which has pressed steel supports not cast iron – but this is the 'affordable' machine (about £3000 including the helical head), and all the really critical parts are top notch in my view – nice cast iron tables, for example. The thicknesser table runs on a massive centre column with a "digital" handwheel (just clockwork, but works perfectly) that allows me to dial in thickness to 0.1mm and it really is accurate once calibrated. Table adjustment is on a very nice parallel bar linkage, no shims and sliding ways. This is a really great machine, and if anyone is thinking about an old iron one (Wadkin, General etc) vs a new one, I do think it's worth serious consideration. I'm not against old machines – I have a 1960s Wadkin BGS sliding table saw that I have restored – heavy and all that but adjusting that slider was a real PITA and dust collection was for wimps in those days.
    It's nice to hear about this other side of your activity, and yes there are some lovely machines out there. A fabulous Canuck whose channel is "Jack English Machines" has the most beautiful Wadkin PK anywhere in the world (probably), you might like to look at some of his machine videos.

    I hope this info is useful to someone, as an echo of what you are putting out. It is good that there is some decent modern machinery available – we are not yet completely lost!

    cheers from England, Miles

  21. My pick on the 4 woodworking machines, for hobby and small professional shops with a single person working in it.
    1 European style combination machine, you have table saw, shaper, jointer, planer and can do mortises (that have to be squared if you don't round the tenons). It can be the only machie you need and good models come with carriages that allow things that most table saws don't allow.
    if properly positioned in the shop eats less space then 4 or 5 single function dedicated machines. I, working in a very little one have it on wheels so i can orient it depending on the particular function used, as it needs space on all 4 sides, or even move it in a shop corner when i need the space for other uses.
    The trade off is that you need to configure the machine for every function so you need more planning and is more time consuming if you have to do a single cut or plane a single edge.
    2 Drill press, it is possible to live without it and still drill holes perpendicular to the surface, using jigs or in some other ways, but is very useful.
    3 Band saw, curved cuts and cuts in wood that exceeds the thickness you circular saw allows, but can be used also for tenons, producing veneers on your own and so on. IMHO a little band saw is a waste of money for everyone that is willing to produce larger things then doll houses or very little pieces of furniture, you need power and strength, the blade should not have any problem when it meets hard or thick wood.
    4 You don't really need a 4rth machine, but some CNC or stationary sander if you have the space and money can be useful. it really depends on the kind of works you do. Also a planer that can plane larger can be an option, the planer built in the combination machine is larger as the jointer, usually from 8 to 12 inches, so good to plane the single boards but not a larger item obtained gluing together the boards like a table top. Also a chisel mortiser that can produce squared corners mortises is an option.
    I would say that, being able to use traditional hand tools, a good traditional work bench is more useful then the 4rth stationary machine.
    For those that know how to use the router and traditional hand tools probably the most useful stationary machine is the band saw. Most of the joinery can be done in traditional ways or with the router, an hand held electric plane can replace the scrub plane, used in the same way, not along the grain, and with the help of a straight edge it is quite fast to bring the boards to a point where it is fast to make them perfectly straight with traditional planes, scrub planes are very efficient but if you have to plane many boards cause a lot of fatigue. long ripping cuts are the other work that needs a lot of your energy and the band saw can be the solution. With a hand held electric plane and a band saw or a hand held circular saw with huge power and depth of cut you can have all the sweet aspects of traditional wood working almost skipping what puts strain to your body and depletes your energy. And the super useful router can do a lot of things if/when you don't feel to do it in the traditional way, joinery, planing board edges, even plane very large boards and on and over.
    For who works wood as hobby and is willing to learn to use traditional tools, building stuff using real wood and not panels the band saw can really be the only stationary machine needed.
